About Flags for the Flagless

Police officers Charley Foley and Bradley Clark founded “Flags for the Flagless” after repeatedly seeing un-used flag poles throughout Tucson, AZ. Charley Foley comes from a line of veterans and Bradley Clark is a 20 year combat Army veteran. Both are mindfully respectful of all that our country stands for and what the American Flag represents. They both hope to foster a sense of patriotism and pride in the community with the “Flags for the Flagless” project.

“FFF”, a 501(c)(3) organization, seeks out businesses, organizations, homes and schools to provide American Flags for classrooms and un-used flag poles. They also take on an educational role, providing historical facts, images and American Flag protocol information to the public. “Flags for the Flagless” plans to reach out to as many schools as possible, on both a local and national level, to ensure that American Flags will fly in their classrooms. And they will continue to hang American Flags on flag poles throughout Tucson, Arizona and the USA.

M/Sgt Charles S Glover served 40 years in the Air Force National Guard; beginning his military career with being called to active duty for Korea, and ending his career with being called to active duty for Operation Desert Storm, where he was 62 years old! Shortly after returning he developed lung cancer and died. In between all that he also served 23 years on a police department in Meridian, Mississippi. An American patriot🇺🇸
Let's remember him and all those who served in our Armed Forces tonight as we turn and face his flag tonight at UofA Stadium.

How do you say "thank you" to so many for the sacrifices they made for this country ? We try by honoring them today, Veteran's Day. Say thank you to a veteran today, it's the least we can do. 🇺🇸

It is with a heavy heart that I must say I lost my best friend last night, my father. Charles "Bud" Foley was born and raised in San Francisco and had one one job his entire adult life. For 30 years he worked for a "local company" at the time, San Francisco based Levi Strauss and Co. A Marine, a gentleman and the best father one could ask for. He and I traveled the world together and had a kick ass time doing it. He made me the man I'm today. He will be sorely missed. 🇺🇸 ... See MoreSee Less

Joann ThompsonCharley, I am so sorry for your loss. I never met your dad but I remembered what he did for me in 2015 in getting the flag to Charleston, SC and he did not even know me. However, I feel I know him because I know you and thank God for our new friendship. Since I just lost my mom a month ago, I know the feeling of loss but the memories are dear.1 month ago   ·  1

I may not be a fan of the NFL this year, but I'd go to a game just for these 5 seconds then leave.

In the United States of America, what is the ONLY flag that gets folded into a triangle? The American flag.
How are ALL OTHER flags folded in the USA? Into a rectangle.
It's not because I say so. There's guidance, the Flag Code.

Today's flag flies over Arizona Stadium in honor of William Andrew Stark. Born in 1890 in San Francisco, Stark served in the Army during WW1. Let us remember him and all those who served and are still serving our Country as we turn and face the flag, while we STAND for 2 minutes during the National Anthem. 🇺🇸
